This simple broccoli cheese casserole is a combination of frozen broccoli, condensed soups, and cheese. Slivered almonds add crunch to the casserole. 

The original recipe called for "garlic cheese," which is no longer available. You may replace the Velveeta cheese with shredded mild cheddar (2 cups) if you'd like, or use Cheez Whiz in the recipe.

The perfect side dish for a holiday dinner, this broccoli cheese casserole is a great addition to any meal.
